ok so i cant keep track of these things, i am just going to post. here we go!

this one is a side view of this ring...it was a 3c center and i liked the split crown aspect of it. the side view was breathtaking...it didn''t look busy in person amazingly. so well done. this was a JE design. i have a top down shot of it coming up at some point..hehee.
I was saying that Mara should consider this setting as her next setting. It was STUNNING in person. And just fabulous. For anyone looking for a REALLY awesome round setting. This is a serious contender.

here is gypsy''s top contender after our visit today, but with some modifications or customizing...this is a 5c asscher so obviously hers is a little smaller. JE does lots of custom work so they didn''t blink an eye on going custom for the setting and doing elements of this one and others as well. erik was so helpful.
those windmils are so thin bt I like them!!!! I''ve never seen them that thin I think and I might even like them better than the thick ones - maybe it''s just me and I''m not a middle of the road sort of person about anything LOL!! I love this ring btw gypsy :)

here is a 4.5c stone in a pave setting...it was really substantial!! funny how you want a thin setting to max the stone but with a 4.5c it looks like you don't need the thin setting!!!

and here is more on the JE Legacy style...it had a round raised prong set stone in it...but you could hardly see the stone shape, because of all the pave going on.

Yours for only 10 bucks honey! That's a CZ. I'm thinking of snagging two of those and putting them in some matini style simple 14K setting and wearing them out and about. They were pretty CZ's.

Hope you all don't mind the running commentary...


Tha Legacy look alike was BEAUTIFUL from the side. I was drooling. From the front it has too much going on for me-- but the side was FABULOUS.

Mara you are SUCH an amazingly great photographer of bling!

That 4.5 carat round was a MONSTER. Seriously. You could bell cows with it. Lucky... elegant cows....

wow, what a great trip!

Thanks for taking us along!


Gypsy, I am glad that you are making some major choices regarding the setting, and I am sure it is good to ''cross off'' the bag halo from your list. I hope you get good news with the quotes you are waiting on and that you can get your baby made!

Mara, as usual, amazing pictures. I just don''t know how you do it!
I think my favorite of all the settings shown was "the contender". It''s gorgeous, not austentacious at all.


looking forward to more pics!

THAT''S THE SHOT! The one I was waiting for.

We seriously had like ten rings out at that time. Eric was really so indulgent with us. I think we amused him.

Like an exhibit at the zoo.

and THESE beauties I saw on the JE site and was in love. they are a set of 3 bangles, 2 with areas of pave and one that is pave all the way around!! YUM!!! of course the ones they had would not go over my big man paw hand but since gyspy was apparently a contortionist in her past life, they went on her quite easily.

Ooohhhh! I love the eternity band.

Mara~

Kind of off topic, but what brand and color is your fingernail polish? It''s divine, as well!

Gypsy~

I love the "contender" too. Great choice!

Y''all certainly had fun.

Were you wearing a blue shirt? The diamonds look tiffany blue in all of the pics.
